(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: I Love…

I love…


… incredible student makeup at IMATS. So inspiring!


… glitter and rainbows (Lit Cosmetics display at IMATS Toronto).


… finding unique eyeshadow shades (Joe Fresh Eyeshadow in Pagoda, $4 from the Fall collection).


… jewel tones (YSL Palette in Nº 11 Midnight Garden, $72 from Fall 2011 collection).


… anything by Giorgio Armani (Giorgio Armani Madre Perla Face and Eye Palette, $150 from the Holiday collection).


… cats.  This guy is a Burmese kitteh and he has such a pretty face.


… my own cat, Scherbatsky of course. Hi Scherbie!


… this boy, who is now my fiancé :) (Photo taken at Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of the highlights of my summer).


… and taking silly photos.

I’m not very chatty today, but hopefully all these beautiful and happy pictures made you smile. :)  How are you?

    LOL Love the last pic – why so violent? ;)

      Haha no I’m just testing how strong he really is, Paris. :)

    LOVE the last two pics of you and your beau! You guys are so perfect together! I wish you all the BEST!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Aww thanks Tracy! :) In my dreams I’d have you, my beauty blogger friends, at the reception. It’s possible yes?

    Why does Scherbie have such a derpy look on her face? is Pucky’s derpy-ness rubbing off on her?

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      A-ha! That’s why I like that pic of Scherbie. She looks like Pucky there. :)

    Oh my god Arianne, you and your fiance are so cute, you look really happy together! Congrats! Melts my cold (preternaturally) jaded stone heart.

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      LOL Aja, you’re hilarious! Thank you. :)

  • http://callitbeauty.blogspot.com/ dani@callitbeauty

    Aww, you and the fiancé looks so sweet together :).

    p.s.
    The YSL palette is stunning and LOOOVE the makeup in the first photo! Hopefully I can be *that* creative when I go to school :).

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      When do you start school Dani? :) So excited for you!

    Awww, your kitties are adorable!!! And oh man…your make-up product pics definitely had me drooling. So pretty! And you and your fiance are adorable. Love that last picture!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Only one kitteh Tiffany; the black one is ours. :) Aren’t all these products so drool-worthy? I love them.

    Thanks for the pics!! They’re great – you, your fiance and Scherbie make a cute family!!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Thanks Jamilla. :) We drive each other crazy sometimes, but most of the time it’s gooood.

    I have three things to say.

    1. OMG that YSL palette.
    2. Sherbs!
    3. How adorbz are the two of you!? Love it.

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Thanks Lindsay! You know, that YSL palette… I have a love/hate relationship with. The colours are really sheer unless you put it over a good base (LA Splash Glitter base is amazing!).

      • http://sometimesfancy.com Lindsay

        Really? Okay. So I’m less excited about it then. How disappointing! I feel like you’d only buy those colours if you wanted a really opaque punch of colour. Tsk, tsk, tsk YSL.

    Ahhh so cute, I love your photos :) Are you used to saying “fiance” yet? ;)

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      No. I now refer to him as “the boy.” :P Or “hey.”

  • http://awalkinthecloset.blogspot.com Lindsay @ A Walk in the Closet

    Cute post and what a great idea! :D

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Thanks Lindsay. :) I’m happy you enjoyed it.

    big congratulations on your engagement!!! woo hoo!!!! that’s such an exciting and fun time of life to go through all of the fun wedding planning and festivities- you willl no doubt be a gorgeous bride!!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Thanks JennySue! We haven’t really started planning since there are things I have to take care of before we can get married at the church. But 2013 will be the year. :)

  • Danielle

    You two are SO freakin’ cute together. Can I bottle you up please?!?! I promise to feed you lots of warm rice. and makeup.

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      LOL that’s good; we consume a lot of rice. :)

  • Aja

    Me again… Arianne, do you have any product suggestions to mitigate shininess? i have olive skin and no matter what I put on my face, by noon my forehead is shining like the top of the chrysler building. I could be a one woman light house based on my forehead shine alone. Anything you would recommend (mattifiers, etc)? Thanks girl!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Hi Aja. For oil control I love love LOVE Cover FX. Their Clear Prep FX primer is the best (I reviewed it… give it a search!). Then blot throughout the day with the Matte FX blotting powder, and Starbucks napkins! ;) I heard other people have good experience with MAC Blot powder as well.

      Also when you do your makeup, make sure to set your makeup with translucent powder, THEN give it a quick pass of the blotting powder. That should keep ya matte. I know, because my skin is naturally shiny as well. Hope that helps!
